Have You Ever Been Lonely was written way back in 1932 and has been recorded by many artists through the years.
Both Patsy Cline and Jim Reeves recorded their own version in 1961 but the duo never recorded together. Cline died in a plane crash in 1963 and Reeves did also the following year.
But an electronic duet was created in 1981 by Owen Bradley, Clines original producer and combined the two voices against a newly created backing track. The song peaked at #5 on Billboard in 1982.
You'll find this on the "Jim Reeves Greatest Hits" album released in 1981.
He'll Have To Go was a #1 country hit for Jim Reeves in the US. It was released in the fall of 1959 and topped the charts in 1960.
It can be found on the album of the same name.
l Love You Because did not chart in the US or Canada when it was released in 1964 but reached #1 in both Norway and Ireland and hit #6 in the UK. Leon Payne wrote the song and first released his version back in 1949.
